De Krans Tinta Mocha, perfect for those cooler days
21 March 2013 by De krans
The perfect partner to hearty winter dishes, in particular comfort food, the De Krans Tinta Mocha 2011, is this year’s perfect winter warmer.
A dry red wine, the De Krans Tinta Mocha 2011 is made from 100% Tinta Barocca grapes, one of the stalwart South African port and red wine grape varieties. Aged for six months, the wine came into contact with heavy toasted French oak, which resulted in a full-bodied wine with intense mocha coffee and chocolate flavours. The wine also displays ripe plum flavours with mulberry fruits on the palate and a firm, juicy tannin structure. Ready to enjoy now, but will reach full drinking potential if left to mature for another five years. Perfect for winter, served at room temperature, according to winemaker Boets Nel this value for money wine is the perfect tipple for enjoyment during the summer months too.
With an eye catching label design, displaying prominent orange, copper and chocolate brown colours, carefully chosen to compliment the coffee and chocolate flavours of the wine. Available in a 750ml screwcap bottlethe De Krans Tinta Mocha 2011 retails for approximately R66 per bottle and can be purchased from the cellar and select retail outlets nationwide.
